Symptomatic Redness: Ed Simon on America and Other Fictions [teaser]

Mar 3rd, 2019 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

Derick Varn interviews Zero Books author Ed Simon about his book America and Other Fictions, secularization theory, and religious life in a modern world.

Here's the back of the Jacket copy for Ed Simon's book:

At a moment of cultural and political crisis, with forces of reaction seemingly ascendant throughout the West, it's fair to ask what use does anyone have for America, God, or any other similar fictions? What use does theological language have for the radical facing the apocalypse? Among the subjects considered: the need for an Augustinian left, legacies of American violence, speaking in tongues, the humanities facing climate change, the maturity of realizing that you will die, how to sail towards Utopia, and witches.
